If you like to plant, but hate to harvest, a pick-your-own or u-pick-em operation maybe the best choice for you and your family. From the stand-point of a farmer, this type of operation provides income and eliminates the hiring of seasonal help which can be difficult to find. It also frees up time for the farmer by eliminating harvesting and transporting.

 Successful you-pick-ems offer an “experience” that includes interaction with the farmer. Visitors want to know about the planting process and the chemicals applied. They also may need harvesting lessons.
For information on planting, consult an LSU Agcenter county agent in your parish or view some of our on-line materials in the "Home Gardening" section.
